Scio is a small community in the northwestern part of Oregon, that's south of Portland, and just 25 miles southeast of Salem. With the coast to the west and a band of national forest to the east, this charming farming town values its furry farm hands, and the Scio Animal Clinic is always ready to respond to resident, or visiting, pups' needs.
Take your pup to the 28-acre Roaring River Park for fishing and hiking. A snifftastic walk down to the Roaring River and along the bank for a refreshing splash in the summer, or to watch for fish. The open areas of the park are an excellent place for some fetching or frisbee. Make it a vacation and reserve one of fifty camping spots available in the park. Under the dense shady forest, you'll be serenaded by the sounds of the river not far away.
The Buell-Miller Country Park is a rustic area with a widened road to allow fishermen and boaters to launch boats in the North Santiam River. The location is a great spot to walk your pup to the river and along the rocks next to the river. Pack a lunch and enjoy a scenic break as you take a few minutes to enjoy the beauty of the river, and Fido splashing at the water’s edge. The area also features a restroom and boat ramp, but you'll need to bring your own water.
Whether just passing through, or staying for awhile, Scio is your quiet getaway from it all!
